This year, HOSA, Future Health Professionals (previously known as American Health Occupations Education Student Organization), held their international leadership conference in Dallas, Texas. From June 21 to 24, Terrace’s HOSA Adviser Jami Wollan, as well as two of the members, sophomore Charlie Li and junior Angela Grachev, and other students from all over the world, packed their bags and made the trip to Texas.

At this conference, there were many competitions, including areas like Biomedical Debate, Clinical Nursing, and Forensic Science. Since the HOSA chapter at MTHS is only two years old, this would be their first time participating in competitions. Other than the fun they had at Six Flags and meeting other HOSA chapters, Li competed in Biotechnology and won first place out of 23. Along with Li’s win, Grachev made it to the finals in the top 40 healthcare photography entries.
